Panel Discussion: Canadian Economic Outlook Update

Canada's future economic landscape is expected to be influenced by slowing global economic growth with trade tensions impacting businesses’ investment decisions and households’ purchasing power; the process of ratification of the new NAFTA deal; slower job growth; a struggling oil and gas sector; and a vulnerable housing market. Our annual and highly popular economic panel exchange promises to be engaging by focusing on an in-depth analysis of the current key economic drivers including a discussion of global factors which will affect near term forecasts.
